|+title: Learning mathematical philosophy|
|+description: The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy is publishing|
|+ resources on their website for students interested in learning mathematical|
|+ philosophy, including my handout on the compactness and Löwenheim–Skolem|
|+The Bristol [Formal Methods Seminar] is aimed at teaching new postgraduates some|
|+of the formal methods used in much of modern philosophy. During the first term|
|+we've concentrated on logic: thus far the sessions have covered introductory set|
|+theory, basic metatheorems of first order logic, and the incompleteness of|
|+arithmetic. Next up are modal and temporal logic, while after Easter the focus|
|+will shift to formal epistemology and decision theory.|
|+Many of the handouts from these seminars have now been made available on the|
|+Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy's website, in their section on|
|+[learning mathematical philosophy]. In particular, they have my handout on the|
|+[compactness and Löwenheim--Skolem theorems].|
|+Since the Formal Methods Seminar isn't a full-on logic course, I didn't have|
|+time to cover all of the material I would have liked to, and consequently the|
|+handout is somewhat incomplete. In particular the downwards Löwenheim--Skolem|
|+theorem is not proved, although of course the proof is available in any good|
|+logic textbook. I hope to correct this omission at some point, and if anyone has|
|+corrections or suggestions, please do [email me](mailto:email@example.com).|
